    Black Ops 3 Title Update 9 (Patch 1.09) Live on PS4

    For gamers on PlayStation 4, a new patch for Black Ops 3 has been released to support tomorrow's Eclipse DLC launch. But that's not all, as most of the multiplayer weaponry got buffed and zombies exploits were fixed. I, personally, love to see that picking up the Uplink drone has been fixed. That was annoying! Anyhow, check out the patch notes below and see if anything intrigues you!

    Eclipse DLC 2 Map Pack Support

    • Spire: Spire takes Multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
    • Rift: Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
    • Knockout: Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970's styled interior.
    • Verge: In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.
    • Zetsubou No Shima: Eclipse also sets the stage for Zetsubou No Shima, the highly-anticipated, all-new entry in theCall of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies storyline that spans the four DLC Map Packs for Black Ops III this year. The Originscharacters continue on their mission to stop the zombie apocalypse not only in this universe but in all universes. Our heroes find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island which is home to the Division 9 facility: a secret biological research lab whose experiments with Element 115 and its effects on human, animal, and plant biology has created horrors beyond belief. Zetsubou No Shima features a foliage rich island map including new terrifying zombie enemies, a variety of innovative transport mechanics, more devastating traps and classic Zombies side quests.

      I still intend to make posts around here, Zombies has been my life for 12 years and that isn't going to stop anytime soon.

      My "space flower and rainbow" pic were painted by my gf in the 80s. We're still friends, I was at her wedding in 2019.
       
      From 1960-something to about 2000, the rainbow flag was the all inclusive symbol of acid freaks and usually dead heads (Grateful Dead). At the turn of the century, our flag and motto were usurped by the gay community, which was mildly awkward. I don't care at all if someone is homosexual, but my pic is the old school hetero acid freak flag for any who contemplate these things and wonder. 
       
      Note the diamond stars: "shall we go, you and I, through the transitive nightfall of diamonds" -Dark Star, Grateful Dead.
       
      Happy gaming!

    • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone's Season One update has been delayed a week, Activision has announced. Season One was set to launch on 10th December - the same day as Cyberpunk 2077 comes out. It will now launch on 16th December. "It's an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping for the biggest Season One launch week ever seen," Activision said in a blog post. Read more View the full article
    • We've already seen some fairly creepy content based on Fall Guys (I'm still trying to forget the bean anatomy shared by the official Twitter account), and now there's even more. This time it takes the form of some suspiciously long legs, and some familiar crewmates are joining in on the action, as someone's made a Star Wars Battlefront 2 PC mod combining both Among Us and Fall Guys. Made by TigerVenom22 and ToastedShoes, the mod replaces all original trilogy-era infantry with Fall Guys characters on the light side, and Among Us characters on the dark. Makes sense given a selection of the crewmates are basically eldritch horrors. They're capable of wielding lightsabers or using Force lightning (on the dark side at least), while the Fall Guys beans come with a range of costumes - one of which has Rowan Atkinson's face. I think there might be a joke there somewhere. My personal favourite is the extremely tall General Grievous Among Us crewmate with four floating lightsabers. Why? I hear you ask. It's a good question - and one I can't entirely answer - but it seems the mod was commissioned by ToastedShoes, who made a video showcasing it on his YouTube channel about a month ago (a heads-up that there's some sponsored content in the footage). It seems to have been inspired by the sudden rise of Among Us which many attributed to the popularity of Fall Guys over the summer, and a perceived rivalry between the two party games. Although they seem to get along just fine on Twitter. Read more View the full article
